Announcements for the MRD: Dow’s Political and Economic Discussion Club
This week the MRD, Dow’s political and economic discussion club, will be focusing on AP study time for Econ students who are interested in Macro testing this year. This will be the final week of AP study and it may also possibly be that last week of the MRD’s operations for the year. We may hold one more meeting next week if something happens in the news that’s big enough to warrant discussion. In either case, we would like to thank the students for their participation in the club this year. The workers’ strikes that have erupted throughout the country this year, already outstripping the number of strikes in 2018, will also be explored in conjunction with a continued discussion on the importance of Jullian Assange and his persecution. Both subjects have been thoroughly covered on the WSWS and can be found in their online archives (https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/). For those interested in AP study time for Econ. testing or the subject of discussion for this meeting, please join us in the Little Theater Tuesday from 3:00 to 4:15 after school.
